A huge congratulations to Level 3 Applied Sport and Business student Jasmine Seamarks on winning a Bronze Medal in the 4 x 100m swimming relay at the international Deaflympics in July.
The Deaflympics takes place every four years and is specifically for athletes and other sportspeople with hearing impairment. Sportspeople come from all over the world to compete in virtually all the areas represented at the Olympics / Paralympics. Jasmine was delighted and extremely proud to be selected for the GB swimming team – and even more so to win a Bronze Medal in the mixed relay.
This year the Deaflympics were hosted by Turkey and took place at Sansum on the Black Sea coast. Jasmine says:
“I enjoyed the Deaflympics so much. I made loads of new friends from team deaflympicsGB and from other countries. Not only this, but I managed to bring home a Bronze Medal as part of the 4 x100m mixed relay. I was very proud of this achievement.”
